Introducing Mina + Olya SS14 Collection

Their story:: Co-founders Mina Yazdi and Olya Dzilikhova first met as colleagues in 2008 at a leading financial and communications consulting firm in San Francisco. After swiftly becoming close friends, they joined together with a shared vision and passion for fashion and sustainability that would ultimately lead to the debut of their ready-to-wear label mina+olya, in 2011. 

This is our second season with the talented designers and excited to debut their new gorgeous Spring collection.  Stop by and see the beautiful pieces in store or online

Introducing Lizzie Fortunato SS14 Collection



Each season, I travel to market finding the best designers for McMullen.   In some cases, something so beautiful happens and I fall head over heels in love with a designer and their work.  This happened with Marcus and David from Rag & Bone and with Andrea Lieberman for ALC when I bought their first collections and watched their brands grow and evolve into what they are today.  

I have the same feeling about designer, Lizzie Fortunato and her twin sister, Kathryn Fortunato.  They are incredibly talented and ever so grounded that you want to spend hours talking with them about their love for travel and their inspiration.  

I first bought Lizzie Fortunato in 2012 and each season, I watch it get better and better.  Last year, they introduced Italian leather handbags with intricate beading and whimsical details like hearts, lips, bananas and other spirited motifs.  They also happen to be my personal go-to jewelry when I have an event, travel or just want a special piece to wear with a simple cotton button down shirt. 

This season, Lizzie focuses on two stories: The Shibuya story and the Naoshimi story.

Inspiration Monday :: Letting


let go 
of things you no longer need
with grace
and thank them for how they served you 
when you needed them
because now is new
and boundless opportunity awaits
let go of what you know
to make space for what is next
each moment is a choice
an offering
slow down
listen
there are feathers 
falling from the sky
